Red In Revenge is the debut release of Toronto-based artist Sophie Powers. The release brings the energy of a hyper pop meets punk amalgamation with hip-hop beats mixed throughout the EP. It shares a message of being a carefree person with an attitude while at the same time being able to be vulnerable and emotional. While just a short 17-minute runtime, it packs a punch.
